We won’t be able to indulge our self with a Donald Trump vs. Oprah Winfrey presidential debate. As The media and business mogul and actress, will not run for United States Presidential Election 2020.

#Oprah 2020 was not just trending but providing hope to a lot of Americans. It all started with the humanitarian’s acceptance speech at the Golden Globe 2018.
Oprah talked about a new Horizon for everyone in her speech. Everyone assumed she will be the bearer of that upcoming happy era. The 63-year-old’s BFF Gayle King added fumes to the fire by saying that her CBS co-host is “Intrigued” by the Idea.
All the anticipation was brought to a stop by Oprah’s interview in InStyle Magazine March 2018 issue.
The Cover star candidly expresses her thought about Running for Presidency in 2020.
Laughing when the question of Oprah 2020 was put to her by Laura Brown, She thinks the 2020 Mugs are Cute.
“I actually saw a mug the other day … I thought it was a cute mug. All you need is a mug and some campaign literature and a T-shirt.”
The A Wrinkle in Time actress believes she doesn’t have the DNA for presidency.
I’ve always felt very secure and confident with myself in knowing what I could do and what I could not. And so it’s not something that interests me. I don’t have the DNA for it.
We have to give credits to Gayle who is genuinely encouraging Oprah about it.
“Gayle—who knows me as well as I know myself practically—has been calling me regularly and texting me things, like a woman in the airport saying, “When’s Oprah going to run?” So Gayle sends me these things, and then she’ll go, “I know, I know, I know! It wouldn’t be good for you—it would be good for everyone else.” I met with someone the other day who said that they would help me with a campaign. That’s not for me.”
Time’s Up Now
Oprah also comments on current scenario of Women getting together to fight against injustice and inequality.
“Ladies first!” @Oprah declares. “Everything that’s happened has brought us to this point in time. We’ve been working our way through a lot of repressed pain, anger, shame, and disappointment. And we weren’t honoring our own voices. Now we’re here, and it took Harvey Weinstein to burst that door wide open,” she tells @LauraBrown99. “Finally everyone has to start paying attention. It’s cracked open. It takes a lot for people to wake up and see things differently than they’ve seen them before.” More from our March cover star at the link in bio. I Photograph by @PhilPoynter
“Everything that’s happened has brought us to this point in time. We’ve been working our way through a lot of repressed pain, anger, shame, and disappointment,”
“And we weren’t honoring our own voices. Now we’re here, and it took Harvey Weinstein to burst that door wide open. But Harvey [Weinstein] wasn’t the first one. It was Bill Cosby before him, and Bill O’Reilly before him. It’s just fascinating to me because I always try to look at things from thousands of feet above…”
She is an active part of Times up now, that supports women to voice against injustice and sexual harassment. Along with #MeToo, this moment has prompted a lot of women to come forward with their stories. Oprah believes that each story is inspiring another one.
“It has seared into the consciousness a level of awareness that was not there before. That’s the most important thing to me. When Reese Witherspoon can tell her story at the same time as a farm worker in Iowa or a factory worked in Alabama, it says to a person, ‘Oh well, I’ve been putting up with that asshole supervisor for all these years. Maybe it’s time for me to do something too.'”
Oprah Winfrey might not be on for election 2020 but in the InStyle issue that hits the stand on February 9, Oprah has her Fash On. Check it out here
